Not Surprising Sony PS4 has Marvell Wireless
Matthew Quint   11/18/2013 7:44:33 PM
No one should be  surprised that Marvell supplied wireless chips for the Sony PS4.  They supplied  IEEE 802.11b/g chips to the PS3. This article helps compare the two systems. http://www.dailytech.com/The+Sony+PlayStation+3+Dissected/article4908.htm.

Re: overall cost benefit using high density DRAM

Higher density DRAM isn't a viable way. AMD dropped the GDDR5 IMC from Kaveri because of the hight cost of this type of ram, one year ago. The fire damage suffered by SK Hynix's Wuxi FAB proved AMD right.

New approach
junko.yoshida   11/15/2013 5:51:30 PM
The teardown of Sony PS4 illustrates a clear departure from Sony's former Cell processor-based playstaion hardware architecture.

Their new approach is that it's not the proprietary hardware that advances Sony's game business. We will see how gamers will respond to that.

overall cost benefit using high density DRAM
shreeganesh   11/15/2013 4:48:07 PM
Adding 16 of 512MB DRAM would take more space on boardand end up higher cost in PCB and Assembly over chosing higher density DRAM.
